WWE Superstars have pretty great jobs, but everyone needs a vacation every now and then. Dolph Ziggler recently took a hiatus, but now he is back and feels refreshed once again.

Dolph Ziggler recently spoke to The Mirror where his WWE hiatus came up. He worked hard for 11 or 12 years so a break was much needed. During that time away from the company he was able to get some real insight and put things into perspective.

“I learned sh*t. I learned that I needed a vacation after 14 years. After about 11/12 years non-stop, and being one of the people like Kofi and Sheamus and Miz that did five days a week, every week for a couple of years in a row, and then we’re doing the rallies and PR. I said I’ve been too lucky with injuries, that fans have now seen me every single Monday or Friday – or whatever our schedule was – I worked 10 years in a row without a break. Miz gets a break to do a crappy movie. Someone else gets one because they get hurt, someone for something else, I thought ‘they’ve seen me so much, I’m taken for granted, there’s no excitement to seeing me 200 times in a row.’”

“So I go, ‘I have to go away.’ For a year or two, I kept getting told ‘sure’ and then right as I was getting ready to go, they said ‘we need you’. I’ve never heard ‘we need you’ more than anything from any other company my whole entire life, but it’s so great to hear, to know that I’ve made an entire career out of them needing me to be here.”


Dolph Ziggler’s team with Robert Roode seems to be going strong without any sign of breaking up at this point. It’s good that WWE eventually let Ziggler know how much they needed him because it just shows that all his hard work paid off.
